DCEF $300 Teacher Mini-Grants are designed to give teachers, media specialists, school counselors, and students extra learning opportunities by providing extra materials or experiences related to the academic curriculum. Mini-Grant criteria require projects to be closely aligned with North Carolina’s Standard Course of Study.

Mini-Grants are awarded to teachers who propose innovative and educational projects with realistic goals, direct benefit to students and a reasonable budget.

Mini-Grants are awarded on a rolling basis.  When a teacher, media specialist, or school counselor sees a project for a student for which they would like to receive funding, please submit an application right away.  The application will be considered immediately, and funded on a first come, first served basis.
